Tic Tac Dough!

Oh, these were so fun to make and look good enough to eat!! *I can't think of magnet set more appropriate for a proud baker's kitchen than these sweet treats! I stamped the cookies in Memento Rich Cocoa Ink, "sprinkled"(stamped) on some hearts from my set, and colored them with Copics. Then I stuck them to my adhesive magnet sheet and trimmed. I covered the icing part of each image with a layer of Crystal Lacquer, it really looks like shiny icing (click on the pic to see the glaze!)


I cut out a large square of magnetic paper and covered one side with brushed silver CS like a cookie sheet; the other side I covered with some DCWV Spring Stack paper, the large plaid design conveniently made a cute tic tac toe grid!

And here they are on the fridge, ready to hold some photos or grocery list(for cookie ingredients of course!)

There are several bakers on my Christmas list who will be getting some of these, they'd also make great stocking stuffers, on a magnetic sheet or tied up in a little cello bag like fresh baked cookies!!

EDITED TO ADD: the pic on the fridge is the moment my sons first met, Jonathan fell in love with his little brother on sight, the look on his face is like "Christmas"! (these days, it's often a different story LOL!!) I used this pic on William's birth annoucnement that I cropped, changed to black and white and then handtinted with some baby blue, maybe I'll share that here sometime...BUT, I didn't stamp on it!! (the horror!)

*Bear with me, I'm on a "magnet" roll, (my third set in a week!) but I've used almost all my magnetic paper LOL! so I'm coming to the end!!) (I can actually think of ONE more thing I want to do hee hee!)

Melanie! These give me so many great ideas!I can't get a bunch of big gifts this year because we are moving soon, but with magnets like these I can use them as embellishments on a card, then the recipient can take them off and use them! Thanks for the inspiration!!!
